22. He is saying some REALLY, REALLY tough things

 

He is saying the things that NEED to be said about conservatism.

We just can't do more than put a finger into the hole in the dam until we take conservatism on, and he just goes directly at them, saying the things I have been saying for over a quarter century.

BUT, when I do it, I am seething, I want to eradicate the poison.

He is saying it in a way that people can hear it.

THAT is why I love him.

But, past that, he is simply just at a level beyond anyone else in politics today - the sheer intelligence, the instincts and delivery, the exemplary compassion.

I liked BHO A LOT.

But, Mayor Pete is him 2.0.

He has his charm and style, but is staking the progressive flag much more strongly, and going directly at republicans and conservatives, going into "their turf"like values and religion and taking the battle to them.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Pete Buttigieg
